Checking in from Colorado

I'm all packed and ready to head off to Dubai! I am extremely excited to be going back to Dubai since I haven't been there in 4 years. I spent a semester of my sophomore year of high school there and my father stayed for two years. This trip is an incredible opportunity for all of us to travel to the Middle East and meet with Emiratis.

My hope for this leadership training and conference is that we will all be able to have amazing dialogues about what it means to be a leader, how to lead and how to integrate this into our different cultures. Like Katie said in her post, Mount Holyoke has given me many opportunities to be a leader and to experience new things while learning more about myself. I hope that we will be able to convey this to the women at Dubai Women's College and work with them to create an atmosphere where they feel they can create opportunities to lead.

And I'm going to head off to the airport to meet up with the rest of the delegation in Amsterdam. See you in Dubai!
